daemon-reload is known to lose state for years. Some problems get fixed,
new problems appear. Problems range from cosmetic to losing state of
units and jobs causing callers of systemd to "hang" waiting for job
completion. Unfortunately daemon-reload is often the only answer to
other reported problems (like in "systemd does not see fstab changes?
Run daemon-reload, where is the problem").
